Gifts to Make New Mom or Dad's LifeEasier: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Is there a baby on your gift list? Do you need gift ideas for a new mom or dad? Think practical, think convenience, think comfort. Something to make mom or dad’s life easier is the gift that keeps on giving.

Favorite gifts are often little luxury’s the parents may not buy for themselves. Courtney, mom of Lucy, 4 months, loves the baby wipes warmer she was given “It’s comforting to the baby instead of shocking her with the cold wipes. It was given to us otherwise we wouldn’t have bought it.” Another of Courtney’s favorites is a baby bunting that covers Lucy’s car seat to protect her from cold winter weather.

Deborah, mom to Cameron, 7 months, says her Boppy pillow makes breast-feeding a breeze. “It wraps around you and is comfortable and supports the baby.”

Many newborns hate baths because the water is too cold. The Mobi Digital Duck bath thermometer can make sure baby’s bath is also just the right temperature. It can also prevent scalding.

If safety is the number one priority for the parents you’re giving to, consider a Safety 1st child proofing kit. The 46-piece kit helps new parents baby safe places they never would have thought to.

A baby monitor allows parents to rest at ease, while their little one naps. A video and sound monitor, by Mobicam, allows parents to see their baby resting peacefully without disturbing her nap.

When baby is sick, the Accu-touch forehead thermometer helps get an accurate temperature without making the baby cry uncomfortably. Then the parents can give accurate information to the doctor and get the best care possible for their baby.

For the family on the go the Bugaboo Frog stroller can do it all. It converts to use as a seat or bassinet with three different reclining positions facing forward or backwards. The bassinet can be used as a car seat with adaptor. The wheel positions can be changed for use on the beach or rugged terrain. The Frog also folds down to fit in the smallest of car trunks.

Mike, father of three, says his favorite gift was a child carrier backpack he got his first Father’s day. The lightweight and sturdy construction allow him to hit any trail with baby in tow. The Kelty carrier is padded and comfy for the baby and includes a rain and sun hood.

For parents to be, a Bebe sounds pre-natal listener can be the perfect gift. Some models let you listen, talk and play music to your unborn baby. You can also record these precious sounds as well as the sounds of your own heartbeat to play and soothe your newborn baby. And, the two headsets let two people listen at the same time. The gift set comes with a classical music cd to help stimulate the baby’s brain development.
